The 24th congressional district of Texas will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Texas is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Voters do not have to register with a party. At the primary, they may choose which party primary ballot to vote on, but in order to vote they must sign a pledge declaring they will not vote in another party's primary or convention that year.[3][4]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Kenny Marchant (R), who was first elected in 2004.

Texas' 24th Congressional District is located in the northern portion of the state and includes portions of Tarrant, Denton and Dallas counties.[5]
